My Boys

At this moment I have two little boys on my lap.

One, aged almost three years, is currently in a phase where he likes to wake up from his nap, and then fall asleep lying on a parent figure for another 20 minutes to an hour. He especially likes having his back rubbed.

The other, aged 21 weeks (gestational) likes to kick his mother as soon as she sits down. If there is any parental cuddling involved, baby boy is not above kicking dad, too. Baby Magnus is a mover and a shaker, and I'm mostly enjoying it, for now. Heartburn has started to set in, especially in the evenings, and I need to adjust my back every time I stand up. But you know what? I haven't thrown up this entire pregnancy, so I'm not really complaining, ya'll.
Here's another belly photo for you all - Seriously, this is way WAY bigger than I was with either of the other 2 kids at this point. Remember, I'm only half way through!


Also, I asked Aaron to chop my head off on purpose. I couldn't figure out exactly what expression I should have on my face - happy? mad at the size of my belly? (More accurate, but not especially attractive, either.) And I never seemed to be looking at the camera anyway.

Yay! Beautiful belly Liz, thank you for sharing it with us.

Also, we are 99% sure you will see us in the spring. Once we get things finalized we will fill y'all in. Just think of how big your belly will be then :)

This also describes the younger male in our household, Manfred:

"One, aged almost three years, is currently in a phase where he likes to wake up from his nap, and then fall asleep lying on a parent figure for another 20 minutes to an hour. He especially likes having his back rubbed."

I won't go into idosyncracies of the old(er), alpha male.

Liz- I can't believe your little Magnus is growing so quickly. I also can't believe how quickly my little Elijah is growing. If the time between our two youngest could just slow down (for my sake), I would relish it forever. I find myself questioning if it's possible to give him too many kisses because I really don't want to stop gobbling up his chubby cheekers. (sniffle, sniffle)

Enjoy these moments because they are fleeting.
Miss you!
